Are you familiar with our new "Lest We Forget" project? The Lest We Forget project will create an historical record of the names of Village of Antioch and Antioch Township area residents, past or present, who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and were honorably discharged. Residents need not have lived here during the period of their service.
For more information on the Lest We Forget project, please see the October 2014 Lakes Region Historical Society newsletter.

1,200 Visit Ladies Attire of the Civil War
More than 1,200 attendees were able to visit the Ladies Attire of the Civil War exhibit this past summer, coming from as far away as North Carolina and Missouri. They were able to see the wide variety of textiles and colors that were used during this time.
Not all was black and grey. Colors included lime green, hot pink and purple. Over 30 gowns and accessories were on display, along with a vast assortment of bonnets, shoes and photographs.
If you were unable to attend, you will have one more opportunity to see additional (with a different selection of) dresses, when the historical society hosts Ladies Attire of the Civil War Revisted II during summer of 2015.
Please check back for exact dates.
This will be the last display of Civil War women's clothing, and will be presented to commemorate the end of the Civil War and honor President Abraham Lincoln.
Here are a few examples of what you missed.
